A very fine set composed of a kiseru (pipe), a tabako-ire (pouch for tobacco) and a kiseruzutsu (pipe case) dating from the Meiji period (1868-1912).
The tabako-ire is made of pressed leather, painted to represent a garden scene, with a metallic ojime (cord fastener) decorated in minute details with black and gold lacquer. The kiseru-zutsu is made of lacquered wood and contains a kiseru. Its bamboo stem shows the usual marks of usage and a short crack near the shank, which also bears marks of usage. The mouth piece is loose but does not come off.
Please inquire if you have some questions.
The set is in overall very good condition; most of the cord used to guide the tightening cord is missing, but the pouch can still be closed.
Dimensions: kiseru 19.9 cm (8 in), tabako-ire 9.8 x 11.6 cm (3.9 x 4.6 in), kiseruzutsu (closed) 22.2 cm (8.88 in)
